SPECIALIZE IN SERVICING SCHOOL DISTRICTS
Based on our experience in implementing personalized learning programs across the United States, we know that quality strategic planning sessions are critical to long-term program success. Zia Learning regularly works with districts starting at the central office to understand the highest level goals and evaluation strategies for program success. Planning and design then expand across the district. Strategic planning that involves all stakeholders is a critical component of a successful implementation.
CUSTOMIZED CONSULTING SERVICES
Zia has developed the Personalized Learning Blueprint to serve as a district-level guide towards program success. Our process involves the critical steps of data analysis, needs assessment, goal setting, ongoing embedded coaching, measuring success through validated approaches, and adjusting based on outcomes. All Zia tools are customizable and can become any district’s own branded solution.
Zia Learning took the time to get to know our district and understand our unique needs. The result was a custom program that resulted in increased student success.

We know the value of finding pockets of progress and innovation within the district where we are working. We capture and scale that success by working with your teachers to showcase what is working right in your own backyard. We spend time getting to know a district and better understand the replicable components that are driving individual classroom success, as well as the pain points and areas of needed growth. Coupling this with national models and examples is powerful in two ways:
1. “If they can do it, so can I.”
There’s certainly power in seeing a teacher from across the nation implementing a new and innovative approach. There’s something even more powerful about seeing a teacher from your own district who is implementing and innovating right around the corner.
2. “Show me how you did that.”
Building leadership at the building level is critical for long-term success. By showcasing what works and incubating innovation within a school, districts can move from “pockets of progress” to sustainable, district-wide models that work.
